  1. I don't believe anything between MTA and media outlets. Take it all as a grain of salt, and carry on. Train operators are doing a fine job down here.
  2. This article won't change anything and is nothing new. The MTA has already made a statement stating the incidents with probationary TO's are low and unfounded. It's fake news, carry on...
  3. Thank you for clearing it up. Like any job you never know what the company is going to do next. I took the test in 2008/2009 and they started calling in 2013. I finally got called in 2015, I scored 90%. You just gotta take the test and wait it out. Take all tests available, and live life like you never taken these tests. I had a career before transit and didn't see this job coming.
  4. If the test is OC, then they call by score regardless if you an employee or not. That would be a provisional job offer, which transit has been doing with other titles. Train Operator is much longer schooling and process so they might not go that route. I never seen it don with this title, but like anything you never know.
  5. To all those worried about not getting called for having a score in the eighties, you still have a great chance of being called. I was told the same back in 2009 and I scored a 90, I am now I'm a train operator. They will go through the list faster than you think, people will be dropping like flies. Keep taking different tests, and live life as tho you never taken any tests.
  6. Don't worry too much about that, try and get as high as you can. 100%-85% would be great.
  7. Age does not play a factor... I know people in their 50's and 60's as newly hired train operators. Doing well down here!
  8. Long hours, good money, overnight shifts. Actually my boy just starting flagging and he loves it, he stated "I am not going back to the road, until I become a TO". However, he doesn't mind the hours or the overnight shift.
  9. I would go there or call back to be sure that have all the info correct. Take a trip down there if you have to.
  10. Honestly I'm not sure about re-doing the medical. However do get yourself back on the list by contacting DCAS, that way they will call you asap. Hopefully within a month.
  11. I'm lost, three drug tests? Call/write today to restore your name on the list, and you'll be ready for the Spring classes.
  12. I hate to tell you... but you are one of the "knows it alls".
  13. You are absolutely correct, I WAS called. Long hard road, but I made it through it all. Well worth it, for most. You guys are next, and when you get in im here to help. I Just took a promotional dispatcher exam last weekend and studying for the next upcoming train service supervisor exam. Promotion al opportunity is available. One thing you will learn is to ignore the negativity, if u haven't yet. I sign in to work, do my job, mingle with positive people, and sign out smiling... Good luck to all.
  14. No blood work. Just urine for the drug test, I can't recall if the urine gets tested for anything other than drugs.
